The Price of Fame

What is fame?  It is recognition surely, but it can be as fleeting as it is enduring. One can be famous for one group and not for another. One can be famous in one generation and not in another. Fame must be judged not only by its apogee but at its lowest common denominator. With this in mind, the following video is offered for consideration as an exhibit for the reach of Mme. Blavatsky’s fame. From the American TV cartoon, Beavis and Butthead created by the talented Mike Judge, Season 4, Episode 15, that was aired April 25, 1994, on MTV. It is titled simply “Madame Blavatsky,” and can be seen here.

Best line: “All is known to Madame Blavatsky.”
